Cincinnati Reds Pitcher Placed On IL

The Cincinnati Reds have placed Mike Minor on the 15-day injured list due to shoulder tightness.

Given the fact that Minor's IL placement is happening with the season just about over, we likely have seen the veteran's last pitch in 2022. The 34-year-old's season was nothing short of a disaster, as he had a 4-12 record to go along with a 6.06 ERA in 19 games. This likely will result in the Reds moving on from him this summer, rather than re-signing.

Minor's focus will now be on recovering from his injury and preparing for the 2023 season. We will have to wait and see if another club will be willing to take a chance on the former All-Star from here.
